  • It's nice place to stay, has markets, restaurants and you can walk everywhere! Sunday's parade but still very beautiful, found safe and easy to get around.

  • We did a mini Tour with the Van that took us to the wineries, we saw that the city has beautiful places p visit. Worth a more detailed tour schedule of the old town and its monuments.
